Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �A1 IfKDAY, FEBRUARY 16, lUlS THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEiVfiN h Open Letter to Dr. Ferguson Raymond, Alta., Pcb. 11, 1918. Rev. t>r. Pergiison, ' Homo Mission Supt. for the NorUi- WOHt. Uovevond Sir,-It reports tire true In our,Canadian nowspapdrs,' yon hnvo mailo somo mlsrepresontntlons ngalnat my.people, that Are base, Blnndorous, and false. We mlglit pass tliem by silently, as wotiavo many things In the past, but there cotnos a timo, Sir, whan pattonco censes to bo a virtue. IC you arc Crom our'Own fair province, there could bo notlllng but animus that would load, you ..to stopp to say tho things reported to have made up your report to tho Prosbytorlnn general nssombiy. �� l'have no ..nuarrel with the Prosbytorlans', as. tny creed teachoa mo tolerance. One of our articles of faith reads: "Wo. claim the prlvllogo of worshipping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allrfw all men tlio same privilege, lot thoni worship how, where, or what tUpymny." Subatantlate Them As to'the report It Is headed-Toronto, Feb. ll.-7-"Dlsloyalty, . veiled polygijnly, and attempts to undermine Christianity and^Chrl.stlan Inslllutlona are charged against tho loaders of tho Jlormou :lnv&slon of Canada," etc. Making an assertion proves nothing. Whore are your figures to substantiate your charges. You have nono, and van pr'oBcnt nono.. Do you think that the officers of the Jaw In this province are so ^tupld that lawlessness, and disloyalty would ho covered up? It Is tin Insult,', not only to our officers and courts, but also to our whole population. When our people entered Into Canada 30 years ago, I admit that some men camo here, who had perhaps engaged in polygamous practices in the United Stales; but after entering our Dominion, only monogamous marriages were recognized, and our lead-era went to Ottawa, made pledges to our Canadian government that Canadian lavs.and ij|\stitutions would be uphold, ns to marriages, as well;as other things,.;\vitli the result, that so far as I have any knowledge, and I claim to'be woU'lntormed on the subject./ I know of no,Instance where a man can be found'In Canada, of our faith who has two families located here and is living in a polygamous relation. So far as 1 know,'there has never been such a case. ' Disloyalty Charge t should Ilko to refer to what you s:iy of I'dlsloyalty." To me, whose ancoslnrs on-my father's side camo from Knglandj and whoSo mother was born and raised in Wales, and who loves Uritish institntiona, and also who know.s tlie Mormon people, such charges against our people, are "A tinkling cymbal and as sounding brass.". Why? In the first place; our words do not belle our actions, neither In Canada, neither in Utah. When in 1SI14, Belgium was being overrun by tho German armies, I think, if you will look up the'records, tho Taylor Stake of .Zlon, representing a few. less than ,'lpop souls in all^worcthe flrat to,B>jvke ijBjOv.car.Joad, p� flour..to scud to.tJhem. '.,Ask--tU.e lidtlvbridge.pomber of parliament If any othej- of the churches In I.othbridge.did/that. Did your flock do it? . . ... Again:-I haven't the figures, but I think you will find that.by way of enlistments, and ..production to aid in supplying our allies, we will compare with any rural community in the Dominion, taklng'the numbers of military age. "Thoro is one thing to consider, liowevor; 'we have more of our population between the ages of one year and 20 years ot age' ^jerliap's than any other district of n like pppulation. The War Loans When'the Liberty Bonds were floated in the United States, the Mormon churclu as a cliurch, subscribed tor $250,0(W;woi'th of tho bonds. Its members oversubscribed tho amount allotted to irtnh. Again-trtah raised its quota of men, as there was a selective conscription, or a'certain number ot certain ages required, of which each state '.was I't^ulr^ to fill a. certain number, and Utah was at the front in her duty. When the 'Victory Loan �was floated here, the Mormon church, as a church/ subscribed $10,000 to tho loan, besides what Us monibora raised, and if yoii 'will go through the other churchds,'! think vou will find we were up to the mark wHh them in supporting thla measure. Wo will compare figures wUh yoji... ,Wa will also compare): witli!>}y6HV3(>il�''Ue"i.
